Morning Walkies Streatham Common

Morning Walkies Streatham Common
When the light is this good, you've just got to get out and soak it up.

A morning walk on Streatham Common in South London.
Camera Nikon D700 with 28-300mm Nikon Lense.

When I first moved to London I thought I'd really miss the delights of Devon, and I do, but there are so many wonderful parks and places that nature has been allowed to do her own thing here. Getting out and about early is wonderful, there is such a peace in the City in the mornings and people are always friendly, especially those that are walking their dogs.

Bruno, my daughter's Staffordshire Bull Terrier, accompanied me today. The light was fantastic and the trees looked stunning. Make me feel good to be alive when it's like this.
